Imām Sa’īd b. Al-Musayyib – Allāh have mercy on him – once saw a man praying more than two rak’ah after the beginning of Fajr, making many bows and prostrations, and so he forbade him.
The man said, “O Abu Muḥammad, is Allāh going to punish me for praying?” Sa’īd said, “No, but He will punish you for contradicting the Sunnah.”
This is one of the superb answers given by Sa’īd b. Al-Musayyib – Allāh have mercy on him. It is a strong weapon against heretics (mubtadi’ah) who recommend many different types of religious innovation in the name of them being dhikr and prayer. They then criticize the followers of the Sunnah for criticizing them, and accuse them of censuring dhikr and prayer, when in fact [Ahl Al-Sunnah] are only criticizing the contravention of the Sunnah in matters such as dhikr and prayer. … More WISE SAYINGS OF THE SALAF – ON BID’AH – INNOVATIONS & MATTERS NOT FROM ISLAM – RIGHTEOUS PREDECESSOR SPEECH

The scholars who studied the issue realized that hashish is an intoxicant, and that it is only consumed by evildoers, because of the pleasure and euphoria it brings. So it is like intoxicating drinks. Khamr makes a person lively and argumentative, whereas hashish makes him relaxed and lethargic, but it still befogs the mind and opens the door to physical desires and heedlessness with regard to one’s honour, which makes it worse than intoxicating drinks. This is something that was introduced by the Tatars. … More ARE MEDICINES WITH DRUGS IN THEM – HALAL OR HARAM – IS CANABIS OIL HALAL – WHAT CONSTITUTES KHAMR – MUSLIM DRUG DEALERS??

This leads to a great issue, where men and women start to mingle and mix through these virtual platforms of sin. What we need to remember and know is that, we are who we truly are, when nobody is looking at us.

How wonderful would it be if Imam Abu Hanifa, the imam whose Madhhab the Bosnian community claims to follow, could come back so that they could view him. The way he looked, the way he spoke, I am sure that the majority of the population would proclaim him a Wahhabi.
